That's right, I'm selling the nv30. It's been a fun ride. Card's in great shape, came -new- from BFG in May 2k4, I've only OC'ed it just a hare for very short periods of time (to 525/1.05), it's unmodded, it doesn't get too hot, and it performs GREAT.

It performs on par with 5900NU and 5900U, but it's a little more hard to find, and, shall we say, historic...

So, I'd like to ask $165 shipped. Card only. Bumps are appreciated.

My heat ID is ragejg, I'm 22-0-0.

ALSO:

Turtle Beach Santa Cruz, will ship with driver disc if you want, $25 shipped.

You know, it would be nice to know exactly how many of these were made, as they really are limited production video cards...

Anyway, yeah, my paypal addy is my hotmail addy ragejgAThotmailDOTcom...

It's not just a gigantic videocard, it's a MONSTER!

Dude that thing is huge!!!!! look at the fan on it!!!!! someone told me that it get hot and very noisy. also if something breaks on it(like the fan) you cant get another one. But if the warenty is still good nvidia will send you a 6800 like they did with my dads 5900. they sent him a 6800LE.thts if it breaks and you didnt do it.

Lol, yeah they were apparently quite noisy. And it isn't really any bigger than my 6800 Ultra. I want this more as a piece of history than as an actual video card. I remember when they were first anounced. I wanted one sooo badly. But I didn't have the money. What I really want to know is how many were actually produced.

Do you guys remember the picture of the women drying her hair with the 5800U instead of a hairdryer?? It was a very funny picture and made me laugh a lot. I wonder if I can still find it.

Cool.. Will Paypal it to ya Wed soon as it clears my account.
Waiting on a echeck to clear.

BTW... I think all the 5800u's looked the same.
It looks just like my PNY.
Nvidia hand made each card and hand tested each card. :eek:
These companies just sold them under there brand.

The PNY, um, I might be able to buy back someday.... I bought it for a friend's PC (my 32 bit rig, a gigabyte nforce2, 2400M @ 2.2, 200fsb) so I could still keep the BFG... but I need someone to have this who'll definitely appreciate it... I'm just not financially good enough right now to let an expensive computer component just sit useless... :(

Einstein, you contacted me first, bkswaney, you contacted me second, and if things don't work out I'll get ahold of ya...

So Einstein, when can you ship $ and/or what method of payment do you want to use?

Yea but noone would use it, it would be WAY to noisy. I would luv to have one of those just to keep as a history item(as the loudest Nvidia card made) LoL :D

:D Heehee, go to your local Western Union, Joker... (actaully, with regards to our communication, you're probably picking it up right now...) Woulda been great if my bank and W.U. weren't so anal about phone number verification... god, it's like you get punished or something for using a cell instead of your home number.
